September 4, 2016 - What We Think of Jesus - John 10:20; 7:12a; Matthew 16:16

The men and women with whom Jesus came into contact fall into three classes:
  1. Those who say, “He is demon-possessed and raving mad.”
    • Only bitter hatred could have brought them to that.
    • Who was it that first claimed that Jesus was sinless and called Him the Son of God?
      • The disciples! These were the men who, with amazing agreement, declared Jesus to be the sinless One.
      • To any reasonable mind this makes the charge of His enemies totally false!
  2. Those who say, “He is a good man.”
    • If we agree that Jesus was good, and if we also agree that a good person always has a keen sense of guilt because of their sin, aren’t we forced to believe He was something more than a good man?
  3. Those who say, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
    • How can we be sure that He was all that the disciples claimed He was?
      • He accepted worship.
      • He forgave sins.
      • His personal claims.
      • He has won devoted followers.
      • He has won devoted followers from all the races of humankind.
      • Every man or woman who really meets Jesus feels the affect and challenge of His life.
